The location is second to none. The rooms are quite cute but showing their age. There were lots of chipped tiles and signs of age in our room. The size was good. The hotel restaurant was great. Breakfast was great. We had a great visit with family in the pub. The rooms were way too hot though. They really need... More

The staff, and I wish I had their names, were just great. Very helpful and extremely friendly. Great location. If you're driving, you might just drive right past as there is no sign except when you're actually in front of it as it is on the wall over the entrance to the car park, so just know it's on the...

I stayed in Kilkenny River Court Hotel with my sisters and nieces. On arrival at the hotel we were checked in by friendly welcoming staff. We then had a stroll around wonderful Kilkenny. Later that night we had a wonderful meal in the restaurant but unfortunately one of my sisters and niece had to go home due to an emergency.... More

Stayed here for a midweek break and enjoyed every minute, entrance located just meters before the River Nore. Extensive decking area under the shadow of Kilkenny and very popular for lunch in the sun. Always plenty to do in Kilkenny and still attracting the Hen/Stag parties.

The breakfast was good and we have one evening meal which was also of a good standard. The staff were helpful and we have no problems. The location is great and very convenient to... More

We really enjoyed the view of the castle but the hotel was just average!! Rooms were hot with no A/C and signs telling you to close your doors at night because of the river flies and I am sure the rodents from being so close to the river!! The room and the bathroom was clean which I am sure is... More

We stayed for one night in this lovely hotel. All areas were very clean and well kept. The room was very comfortable and spacious. We did not have an evening meal here but the breakfast was very nice and freshly cooked buffet style which was being attended by a chef. I was looking around to see if I could see... More

Room overlooking the car park, it was nice and clean and a good size. The bathroom was awful. Both the bath and sink was so low I went back down to reception as I thought... More

Great food with no long delays between courses (which can't be easy when they were presumably also serving food to other hotel guests not attending the... More

Great hotel with good location, comfy rooms and most of all, an excellent breakfast. We thoroughly enjoyed our break and found the staff to be so helpful and courteous. Bright airy room with nice quality bed linen and great fluffy towels. Food also very good in the restaurant
